Wrap each section in plastic wrap and store in the freezer. To use the ginger, unwrap the amount you need to use, then return the rest to the freezer. It's a great way to keep ginger from spoiling!
Story Behind this Recipe
This wisdom was passed down to me from my beloved grandmother who was born in the Meiji Era. A great-grandmother to my precious daughter, she was an energetic woman who lived until 101.
This turns out beautifully when grated! Let sit to defrost a bit before slicing. Since the core might still be frozen, use a sharp knife, but be careful not to hurt yourself! When using them whole, just plop them into the pan as is.
